ENGLAND’s Eric Dier has hit back at those who see football players as spoiled, fat brats.
The Spurs main player, 28 today, told a podcast: “Judging by the way I play, I don’t have too much of a problem.
“But I have a bigger problem with the way football people see it.
“A 22-year-old boy can do one stupid thing and it will snow.
“That doesn’t mean it’s right. If he did it a second time, I’d be like ‘Idiot’.
“But it’s normal for people of that age to make mistakes.”
Dier, who speaks Portuguese and raised funds for a catering app, said multiplayer is very smart and interesting.
“You look at their cars – but it’s the cars where eight years old and up are the most disciplined, the hardest working, the most dedicated,” he added.
